Just when I thought the Dodgers had tied it up the Baseball gods decide to slap me across the face. Jamey Carroll hit a bloop single to left which, under normal circumstances, would have scored Reed Johnson from second base. Unfortunately, Russell Martin rounds second a bit farther than he should have and gets thrown out by an attentive Juan Rivera before the tying run could score.
When things aren't going right nothing goes your way. Fortunately, we still have over half the season to go, so there is more than enough time to right the ship. On the other hand, with our luck so far this year I can't blame someone for overreacting.
Keep this in mind, though, we didn't lose because of this play. There were plenty of other mistakes throughout the game that set this all up, and I can't help but think that we were destined to lose this one.
